summer essentials

<W scrutinizing the honest sunscreen before taking a bite>

Growing up in Florida, I have always loved going to the beach. It's even better now that we have a mini to tote with us. I keep expecting him to go crazy for the sand, but he's still pretty fascinated by the sunscreen bottle! Since summer basically started in April down here, my beach bag has stayed packed for the past few weeks, and probably will be through September.

ten dreamy black rooms

After our nursery fiasco (to be detailed in full at a later date), I learned never paint a room without a paint sample on every wall. For the past month(s), we've had four different paint splotches on each wall of our dining room. Yesterday, we finally had the room painted. I anxiously watched our nanny cams for glimpses of the work in progress, and was beyond excited to get home.

Happy Mother's Day

Something inside you changes on the day you become a mother. 

the lob

I'm off to freshen up my cut today, and think I'll be going a bit blonder for summer. Those pesky platinum hairs growing along my part lines are multiplying, and I've decided blonde will blend better. I'm slowly growing my lob out, but plan to keep the angles around for a few more months.

beach weekend

A couple weekends ago my parents invited us to stay at their place for the weekend while they were out of town. We jumped at the chance for a staycation down the street in the Pass-a-grille area. Wyatt was a little under the weather, but if you didn't know him, you would never know.
